Legendary composer John Massari has been slaving long and hard to turn the original ‘Killer Klowns from Outer Space’ synth soundtrack into a fully orchestrated spectacle. I first spoke to John about this project nearly two years ago, and the fruits of his labor are finally coming to life on May 19th at The Montalban in Los Angeles. Leading up to the momentous occasion, I once again sat down with maestro Massari to discuss the trails, tribulations, and rewarding moments on this road to a ‘Killer Klowns’ orchestral outing.
The event will also include a number of other features that will be sure to please even the most hardcore fan:
At 6PM, the Kosmic Klown circus celebration will begin with stilt walkers, balloon folding artist Buster Balloon Cadwell, contortionist Bonnie Morgan, plus fortune tellers, strong men and women, magicians, body art, fan arts and crafts, and of course the Killer Klowns. There will be a pre-show Q&A at 7PM featuring Stephen Chiodo (writer/director), Charles Chiodo (writer/art director), Edward Chiodo (writer/producer), Grant Cramer (Mike Tobacco), Suzanne Snyder (Debbie Stone), members of The Dickies, and composer John Massari, moderated by Jim Branscome of Cinematic Void.
Following the Q&A, at 8PM, the film will be screened with its original musical score performed live by The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Massari. LA’s very own original punk rockers, The Dickies, will perform their enduring classic ‘Killer Klowns From Outer Space’ theme song.
